Became known potential rivals Dynamo Kyiv in the qualification of the Champions League 2020/21. The list of opponents added the Vice-champion of Croatia, club “Lokomotiva” Zagreb, and “Besiktas”, the representative of Turkey.
The white-Blues will start the game with the third qualifying round of the Champions League, which will consist of one match (15/16 September). The draw will take place on August 31. Then the last round of qualifying (Q4, called the playoff round) will be conducted from two matches (22/23 and 29/30 September), his draw is scheduled for 1 September.
Below is the list of teams that could become rivals “Dynamo” and then in Q3 or in Q4 (except for the Russian “Krasnodar” because of the forced breeding for different pairs). In the third and in the fourth round of qualifying for Kiev due to the high ranking will be seeded (and Benfica, which the Ukrainians also will not play).
Trabzonspor, who became the second in the Turkish championship, disqualified from participation in the competition for violation of rules of financial fair play, but has filed an appeal against this decision (on the current situation, Turkey will represent the “Besiktas”, which took third place).
Interestingly, the French “Rennes” can qualify directly for the group stages of the Champions League if the Europa League 2019/20 will win the team that has already qualified in the Champions League through national championship.
Thus, potential rivals Dynamo in Q3 and Q4: Victoria Plzen (Czech Republic), rapid Vienna (Austria), PAOK (Greece), “AZ Alkmaar” (Netherlands), Rennes (France), “Locomotive” (Croatia).
In addition – and even “Gent” (Belgium), Besiktas (Turkey), but these two teams can overlap with the Dynamo only in Q4.
